Marilyn Manson says he is the vampire of love.
The 38-year-old goth rocker - who is dating 19-year-old actress Evan Rachel Wood - says he preys on young women and wants to "consume" them.
Marilyn said in a magazine interview: "I've always though that association, with the romanticism of vampires, was a bit too obvious a fit for me. But a vampire is only something that can be killed by stabbing it through the heart. And that's my weakness, metaphorically.
"Love can destroy you. But also a vampire is a character that only comes out at night-time, and ultimately preys on young women. And drinks blood. This idea of consuming someone, whether it's literal or a metaphor, is quite romantic."
The controversial star also revealed he uses caviar as part of an extravagant sex game.
He said: "I can order caviar and throw it away. That's decadent, isn't it? I did it last night! The record company were paying though. And there was sex involved."
